Abstract

This volume contains the proceedings of a workshop on agricultural water management which was organized by the Institute for land and water management research, held at Arnhem/Netherlands on 18th-21st June 1985 and sponsored by the CEC Directorate-General for Agriculture, Coordination of Agricultural Research, as part of the Land and Water Use and Management Programme. The programme of this symposium was drafted on the basis of agreement on priorities reached in two preceeding meetings: a seminar on land drainage, held at Cambridge in 1982, and a workshop at Brussels (results unpublished) with emphasis on irrigation and environmental effects. The following topics were focussed on: Drainage and reclamation of soils with low permeability; effects of drainage and/or irrigation on agriculture; installation and maintenance of drainage systems; regional and local water management systems; and: effects of agriculture on its environment. Each of these topics formed the content of a session, each session was concluded by a discussion; recommendations, an outlook on future activities conclude the book.
